Consider leaving a legacy gift that will help ensure we meet seniors’ needs for years to come.

The Legacy Circle includes donors who name the Tallahassee Senior Center Foundation as a beneficiary of a planned gift, which helps ensure quality services for generations of seniors.

Planned giving benefits you and your family – not just your beneficiary. Making decisions now guarantees that your estate plans – and your legacy – support the Tallahassee Senior Center. Options may include: Gift of Life Insurance · Bequest by Will · Gift of Appreciated Stock · Charitable Lead Trust · Charitable Remainder Trust

If you are exploring estate-planning options, we have local experts and other community resources available to help you make informed decisions – no matter where you choose to leave your legacy gift. Through the Legacy Circle, we host accounting and estate-planning speakers several times each year, and we celebrate those individuals who have chosen to create a lasting legacy at the Senior Center.
